San Francisco’s Internet Archive says the Google books settlement needs an intervention.

The digital library wants to intervene in the $125 million settlement with authors and publishers that gives Google the rights to scan and sell books on the Internet. In a Friday letter to the New York judge handling the case, the Internet Archive claims that if the settlement is approved, it would give Google a monopoly on so-called orphan works — out-of-print books whose copyright owner can’t be found or isn’t known.
